Overview
Introduction
The Keysight Technologies, Inc. M9536A is the world’s first AXIe embedded controller which enables new capabilities not previously available and provides a
high-performance, compact platform solution.
Product description
The Keysight M9536A is a powerful, one-slot module that can be used to build compact
AXIe systems. It easily integrates into hybrid test systems using GP-IB, USB, and LAN
with the built-in front panel interfaces and an optional USB/GP-IB converter such as the
Keysight 82357B.
The embedded controller is built upon a high-performance Intel Xeon quad-core processor with Hyper-Threading Technology. This makes the embedded controller perfect for
high-performance applications and multi-tasking environments.

Quad-core processor
The M9536A architecture is built using the Intel Xeon L5518 quad-core processor as
its basis. This processor utilizes the Intel Hyper-Threading Technology with a total of 8
simultaneous threads. Use a multi-tasking operating system, such as Microsoft Windows 7, to take full advantage of capabilities of this processor.
Memory
The M9536A has three 240-pin RDIMM memory sockets which support DDR3-1333
REG/ECC RAM. Each socket can support memory modules up to 8 GB for a total memory capacity of 24 GB. The standard configuration utilizes a single 8 GB memory module
with an option to add a second 8 GB module. This leaves an empty socket for future
upgradeability.
Solid-state drive
A 160 GB solid-state drive is included standard with the M9536A. This drive provides
superior reliability compared to a conventional rotating hard drive.
Video
The Keysight M9536A has an integrated ATI ES1000 2D graphics controller to provide an
analog VGA port on the front panel. This graphics controller is capable of UXGA resolution up to 1600 x 1200.
Peripheral I/O
The embedded controller provides I/O connections to both the front panel and the AXIe
backplane. The front panel contains connectors for USB 2.0, UXGA graphics, Gigabit
Ethernet, and RS-232. Connections to the AXIe backplane include both Gigabit Ethernet and Gen2 x4 PCIe. The controller can be connected to GP-IB instruments using an
external USB/GP-IB converter such as the Keysight 82357B.
Compliance
The M9536A embedded controller is AXIe 1.0 compliant. It does not provide the chassis
management functions of the AXIe system module but does provide additional processing power for the chassis. Hence, it should be installed in a secondary hub-slot in an
AXIe chassis such as slot #1 in the Keysight M9502A or M9505A.
Easy maintenance and support
The M9536A is easy to maintain or upgrade. Simply detach a panel to remove and install
memory or replace a the solid-state drive. The SSD contains a recovery partition that
can be used to restore the drive to the factory default conditions.
Software platform
The embedded controller supports Microsoft Windows operating systems and comes
with the selected operating system and M9502A/M9505A drivers installed. Keysight
I/O libraries, including VISA, Keysight Connection Expert, and I/O monitor, are also
pre-installed.
